Manchester United purportedly remain persuaded that they will sign Porto left-back Alex Telles this current summer’s transfer window.
The Red Devils are top favorites to win the race for the attack minded left-back, who has not exactly a year remaining on his contract at Porto.
While Premier League giants would have liked to have settled a deal, Porto demand that they need to recover at least £22.5m for the Brazilian.
Italian writer Fabrizio Romano claims that Manchester United officials are sure of in the long run making the breakthrough in negotiations with the Portuguese side.
Alex Telles would almost certainly push ahead of Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw should he move to Old Trafford before the end of the transfer window.
The Brazil international has started every one of Porto’s two games this season, contributing two goals and one assist.
